How to Hire a Carpenter


Hiring a carpenter is similar to hiring a contractor, landscaper, accountant, or any type of professional service. There are a number of things to keep in mind when choosing your next carpenter. Listed below are a few things to consider when choosing the right carpenter.

  • References - Hearing from past clients of a carpenter or contractor is a great way to learn about someone's reputation, work ethic, and credibility. Anyone proud of their work history will be happy to produce references upon request.
  • Pricing - If the job is very small simply describe the problem and ask for a quote over the phone. If the job requires an in-person visit then ask the carpenter if he charges by the job or the hour. Typical household problems can get completed within a couple of hours if not less depending on the size of the job. If purchasing new product is needed ask for a quote on the product as well as the labor.
  • Experience - Simply ask how long they have been doing this type of work and if they have ever performed similar jobs in the past.
  • Owner or Workers - Ask the person on the phone if they are the carpenter coming to your house or if someone else is performing the work instead. Many carpenters are both the owner and the worker. Try to get the owner to perform the work instead of any potential worker bees of the company.

Finding the right carpenter is easy and once you do get the person for the job you are most likely to require their services in the future as a homeowner.
